2018 Quick Hitters

We put out a full report on each kid who attends camp. That will be a week or two out, so here are some quick hitters from the South Carolina Top 80.

From the 2018 Class

Juwan Moody 5’9” of Conway HS (Conway)
Moody is a quick on quick type of guard who likes to get downhill. Right now he plays at one speed, but displays good touch and range.

Jermaine Patterson 5’9” Bluffton HS (Bluffton)
Patterson is the epitome of a true point guard. He has a swagger and a flair to his game, but is fundamentally sound. Patterson is a high level passer and a tough 94’ defender.

Robert Guyton 6’ Myrtle Beach Christian (Myrtle Beach)
Guyton gets better and more confident each time he steps on the floor. He is a fundamentally sound player that shoots the ball well.

Trey McGowens 6’ Wren HS (Piedmont)
McGowens is a tough kid, as evidence by his success on the football field. On the court he is athletic and confident with the ball and on defense.

Matthew Lee 6’1” Heathwood Hall (Columbia)
Lee is a solid point guard, who runs his team. He showed a confidence with the ball in his hands and the want to defend his man.

Foster Bridges 6’5” Landrum HS (Landrum)
Bridges had a tough showing, scoring at three levels and showing some sneaky athleticism in transition. Bridges is a shooting guard, that can score the ball.

Braden Galloway 6’5” Seneca HS (Seneca)
Galloway has good size for his age and wing position. He has a smooth touch off the catch, with good range beyond the arc.

Aaron Nesmith 6’4” Porter Gaud (Charleston)
This was sort of a break out event for Nesmith. Last year he led his varsity team in scoring and now has taken his game to the next level. Nesmith is a tough kid,

DJ James 6’6” Andrew Jackson HS (Kershaw)
James is a strong guy for his age. He has the ability to bully his way toward the basket. He rebounds well and has no fear. James is highly productive around the basket.

Sam Tyner-Tarhouni 6’7” Easley HS (Easley)
Tyner-Tarhouni stood out, not only for his long shoulder length hair but also for his non-stop motor. Tyner-Tarhouni finished 6th in scoring at 15.7 per game, as the majority were at point blank range off offensive boards.

Jerrel Kelley 6’8” Laurence Manning Academy (Manning)
Kelly, a lefty has a great skill set from 18 feet and in. He handled the ball well from the high post, and showed touch. With his length and skill set as he continues to work look for his star to be on the rise.

Jake Lanford 6’8” Porter Gaud (Charleston)
It was a good day for Lanford, as he battled in the post with guys 2 years older. He was comfortable in the post, as a big. Lanford passed the ball well and as he continues to develop his core strength will be able to continue to establish his presence.

Kyle Rawson 6’8” 22 Ft Academy (Greenville)
The lefty was comfortable on the wing. Needing to add strength to his wiry frame, Rawson handled the ball in the open court, displayed high level vision, and made shots beyond the 3-point line and in the mid range. Rawson is ranked as the Top player in South Carolina’s 2018 class.

Ryan Carfley 6’8” Georgetown Arts & Sciences (Georgetown)
Carfley was comfortable facing up, but also established a presence in the post. Possessing very good length, as he continues to gain strength, his game should continue to develop. Upside is here.

Rashane Duncan 6’8” Wade Hampton HS (Varnville)
Duncan has great length, even for his size. He showed some touch out to 10 feet and ability as a rim protector.
